    Re: Office 2000 SP3 (O2K Pro)

    Microsoft Knowledge Base Article #318794 seems to address this problem, though I don't really see a 'solution'. MS even seems to recommend waiting until the next fix arrives.

    Re: Office 2000 SP3 (O2K Pro)

    I don't think this article applies for two reasons. First, this problem was supposedly fixed by SP3 according the the update documentation. Second, I have this same problem (on Win 2K) and haven't changed any languages. The update documentation mentions a problem with 100% CPU in Outlook if you hold down the left mouse button, but I haven't done that either. Woody's latest issue of WOW talks about having modified Outlib, but I know I didn't do that either (and in fact, just did a clean re-install of Office 2K about a month ago). This seems to be a pretty flagrant bug in SP3. There is another possibly related bug. Notifications for meetings, appointments, etc. appear to have become completely flaky. I get some way too early and some way too late. Unless someone finds an answer fast, I'm going to uninstall and re-install Office and go back to SR 1a.

    Did you see this in WOW #7.53

    A good friend of mine, who has a hacked outllib.dll, sent
    me this cautionary note, after installing SP-3: "I couldn't
    figure out why I was going to 100% CPU ~25 seconds after
    launching Outlook, until I replaced the patched DLL with
    the original. Blammo. Back to normal."

    So if you hacked your outllib.dll, I sure hope you have a
    copy of the original handy! Over-write the hacked
    outllib.dll with the original BEFORE you install the SP-3
    update.
